Overland announces second quarter January 31, 2008 financial results



    HALIFAX, March 28 /CNW/ - (TSXV - OVL) Overland Realty Limited (the
"Company" or "Overland") announced today its unaudited financial results for
the three and six months ended January 31, 2008. The results reflect continued
strong operating performance and cash flow generation.
    The Company reported revenue of $2,922,857 for the quarter and $5,641,227
for the 6 months ended January 31, 2008 reflecting stable long term
contractual income and revenue growth on lease renewals. Revenue for the
comparable periods in the previous fiscal year was $125,219 and $199,050
respectively. Net property operating income ("NOI") was $1,458,838 for the
current quarter versus $62,198 for the same quarter in fiscal 2007. The NOI
results for the quarter were lower than the previous quarter of $1,607,336 due
to the anticipated seasonality of certain expenses. Property Management
Income, which can vary significantly by quarter, was up 45% over the previous
period.
    The Company continued to generate positive Funds from Operations ("FFO")
of $348,285 or $0.018 per share for the quarter and Adjusted Funds from
Operations ("AFFO") of $370,521 or $0.019 per share. On a six month
year-to-date basis FFO was $479,811 or $0.025/share and AFFO was $256,334 or
$0.013/share. This compares with FFO of -$282,175 and AFFO of -$179,513 in the
comparable period in the previous year. Net property operating income, FFO and
AFFO are defined in the Management Discussion and Analysis that accompanies
the financial results.
    Cash flow from operating activities was strong, generating $704,400
within the quarter and $907,422 year-to-date. This compared to negative cash
flow from operating activities of $92,832 and $147,201 respectively in the
previous year.
    Management and Administrative ("M&A") expense totaled $397,827 for the
current quarter compared to $126,934 for the quarter ended January 31, 2007,
and down from $608,601 in the first quarter of the current fiscal year. The
quarter over quarter decline reflects management's efforts to reduce M&A
expenses as recent portfolio acquisitions are integrated. Overland recorded a
Net Loss of $14,224 or $0.001 per share for the quarter ended January 31,
2008, versus a Net Loss of $239,810 or $0.017 per share for the similar
quarter in fiscal 2007 and a Net Loss of $364,581 in the first quarter of this
fiscal year.
    Total assets for the Company were $68,857,577 as at October 31, 2007,
versus $70,164,509 as at July 31, 2007. The reduction in Assets relates in
part to the reclassification of deferred finance costs as required under new
CICA guidelines, and depreciation on the Company's real property and
intangible assets. Correspondingly, liabilities for the Company declined to
$63,885,632 as at January 31, 2008, compared with $65,148,516 as at October
31, 2006. The reduction relates to the principal payments on the Company's
mortgage debt and the reclassification of deferred finance costs under revised
CICA guidelines as referenced above.
    Operationally the Company's portfolio produced good results with
occupancy remaining tight at 95.7%, down slightly from the previous quarters
mark of 96.2% occupancy. For the year-to-date period the Company renewed 82%
of rolling tenancies representing 4.1% of the portfolio square footage with a
weighted average net rental increase for renewing tenants of 7.2%.
